Shahid Afridi Sets New Criteria for Selecting T20 Batters

PCB Selection Committee Chairman, Shahid Afridi took some crucial decisions regarding the selection of the national T20 team.

Afridi directed the curators to prepare the bouncy surface for Pakistan’s final Test match against New Zealand in Karachi. Afridi emphasized the importance of bouncy pitches for the Pakistan team. It will help players prepare for competitions in foreign countries with similar pitch conditions.

He also added three Pakistan Junior League star performers to the Test squad against New Zealand.
